Happy Saint Valentine's Day!

I set up a fancy table the night before Valentine's Day with goblets for OJ, scrapbook paper placemats and namecards, and the fun Valentine's letter download from Hallie for Steven.

The orchid was from friends who came to our house blessing!  (Steven brought me a pretty pink flowered plant for the yard today :)

This was another Pinterest idea, to form cinnamon rolls into hearts.  I just used the canned ones, and unrolled them to make the heart shapes!

They turned out so cute!

We woke the kids up for a 6:30am breakfast with Daddy!  Everyone was tired, but not too tired for cinnamon rolls, strawberries, and OJ!

We let Thomas sleep through the breakfast party, but he was still thrilled for his strawberries later in the morning!

We went to the local nursing home down the street with our homeschool group to do some Valentine crafting with the residents.

The kids enjoyed it although not many of the elderly residents came in for craft time!

We had a pretty big group and did get some encouragement from some of the ladies on just how much they love having the children run around their home and how much it means to them that we visit.

We came home for lunch, and somehow I was able to snap a Valentine photo of our happy crew!

We had a restful afternoon, with one child feeling a bit under the weather.  Steven brought home Chinese take-out and I went to Zumba!  A fun Valentine's Day!  We're still looking forward to our homeschool group's big party on Friday where the festivities will continue.

Hope your Valentine's Day was filled with lots of love and laughter!
